Business Background Check List
by Joe Hoover

If you are considering a business relationship, you need to learn everything you can about the business in question. And you certainly need to learn everything you can about the people who own and operate the business.

Learn pertinent details about the principals, including their assets, by conducting a thorough Background Check on owners and top management, which should include criminal searches, civil searches for lawsuits, legal actions, and derogatory credit report entries, like liens, bankruptcies, and judgments.

Tap the national databases to compile an in-depth Report for business and personal assets information. Check professional licenses. Search county records for tax liens, judgments, and complaints.

You need to check all available records pertaining to a business, and conduct a Business Credit Report to ascertain its creditworthiness; its standing in the local, state, and national business communities.

You do not need to know the names of business owners to conduct a Business Background Search - along with the all-important Business Credit Report - which will identify owners.

Identify bank and financial accounts through UCC filings and other searches. Often, the name of the bank or lending institution that provided the financing for business loans will be discovered.

Check out businesses and service providers. Ask: "Can I trust these people?" and  "What do we know about this company?" Consider potential risks: contractors take deposits and then never do the job; crooks who defraud investors out of millions of dollars. Make sure a company - and especially the people who run it - are reputable, and that their image is not marred by liens, judgments, bankruptcy or civil actions.
